This series of new double-sided posters by Oscar Murillo, in collaboration with Mandy El-Sayegh and Yutaka Sone, is produced on the occasion of Room Services, a live multi-day drawing and printing performance specially organized for Printed Matter’s 2016 New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1.
The primary elements of Room Services are workstations, where the three artists generate new collaborative graphic works based on unbound book materials fabricated at GHP Media, a printer located in Connecticut. Delivered on pallets, this “raw material” is assembled on-site by Murillo, El-Sayegh, and Sone, as they continue to work with the printed sheets. Through the act of structuring Room Services, an operational assembly and book-production site, the artists will explore the boundaries of collaborative action, the distinct expressive potential of drawing, and the potency of the printed form.
A special edition of unique artist's books, produced on site by the three artists, will be available exclusively in the DUPLEX space at the New York Art Book Fair.
Special thanks to GHP Media, West Haven, Connecticut.
